Remarks: My young DUS friends (Justin, Lukas, Noel, Cedric, Max, Patrick, Paul) are really enjoying the time at the airport while Mahan Air A310 is taxiing for the departure. Picture taken at the Observation Terrace located at the Bahnhoff Station. Fantastic place for photographing arriving ad departing planes at RWY 23L/R from early morning till afternoon. Google coordinates: [ 51.291248,6.785323 ]. This picture is dedicated to all spotters I know from DUS area!
Remarks: This hill - located on the east of Runway 16 - is, in my opinion, the best spotting place at this airport. Perfect for morning shots for arrivals and departures on this Runway. You can reach the spot by a 5 minute walk from your car. +48° 7' 9.92", +16° 34' 59.89"
Remarks: Fellow spotter Ftzvika in action, he's taking some photos in the parking ramp of general aviation. There is a need to request approval from the manager of the airport to take photos in this location. Google maps: 32.811696,35.040486
Remarks: This spot is located to the south of R32 and is directly opposite the threshold.It is about a 20 min' walk to get to this location from either direction .Very overgrown and very muddy .Here JP photographer David Blaker is in action.

Remarks: Spotting point located close to the main terminal. From here are possible shots of all activities on the apron and remote parking as well as touch down and take offs. Some airport's vehicle could stop through your lens and the aircraft. Here some local spotter takes some photo of the special guest of the day - a Titan B752 on beahalf of British Airways instead of the usual B734 [Google Earth Coordinates 45°11'35.50"N - 7°38'39.15"E]
Remarks: Nice look from the Airplane Viewing Area at CVG. That's the Polar Air Cargo (N453PA) in from Alaska on a late Saturday morning with a few visitors checking it out. In the background is Delta concourse "B" at terminal 3 and may be history in the next few years , as they plan to tear it down. Serious clouds in the area too.
There's a plaque posted at the back of this viewing area that states in 1880 this area was the approx. center of population in the United States with
a population of 49,371,340 and located at North Latitude 39 degrees 4 minutes 8 seconds/ West Longitude 84 degrees 39 minutes 40 seconds.
Remarks: The viewing terrace atop Frankfurt's Terminal 2, a nice place to enjoy the airport action, as demonstrated with a landing of this Lufthansa 747. Bring your own binoculars along, or have a view through one of those installed on the railings! [1200px.]
